Is the alarm new and with the same impeller? Impellers are simple pieces of rubber - even a brand new one can lose a blade.

I change the impeller with housing every 300 hrs or 1 year. Whatever comes first.

BTW to all the guys who do not flush their engines... You are the reason I refuse to buy any used motor. What else do you neglect if you cant do a simple task as hooking up the hose to your outboard...

Your right.
I'm super sorry. I will start flushing it for you.

Lol....jk man. Never ever had a problem selling any of my used equipment. And I'm super honest that motor never been flushed. They shrug their shoulders and right a check. I am still in touch with many of the new owners of my past boats/equipment/vehicles as it is often a friend or acquaintance who buys. Noone has ever reported an issue back that they felt I mislead them on. And never ever heard of one of my boat motors going bad on them. Thousands of hours when sold....thousand or so more put on them after being sold. No issues that I know about. Modern outboards are purdy dang reliable. They all fail.

My current boat I just repowered to a Suzuki 300. It had a Suzuki 250 that the previous owner over spun and killed the cylinders. Low compression on all 6 cylinders when I bought with 200 hours on it. I knew it when I bought it. I put over 1200 hours on it knowing it was hurt just like that. And it never failed on me. Supposed to have 175 Psi....it had130 on two cylinders, 120 on two cylinders, and under 110 on two cylinders....and ran fine for what I needed. Ran good and sounded good.

Modern outboards are purdy good yall.

Why you do or don’t buy something is your business, but why attack other people for how they maintain their equipment? Grem is a fishing guide and runs his boat several times each week. He doesn’t have to flush his motor like the average guy that runs theirs twice a month, if that. His motor won’t sit up and corrode like most boat owners will.

But hey, seems like a lot folks on here are singleminded experts and know best about everything.

tarpon ??

i wonder if we could get a mechanic or expert (Ronnie/Redwing) to tell us if it's necessary, and what a motor without looks like inside, versus a motor with looks like inside. maybe i'm wasting water when i flush. i've always tried to care for my equipment, and have been told to flush my entire life(saltwater boats only).

I’m no expert, but I believe flushing is like using gas with ethanol. If you run your boat almost every day like guides or commercial guys (or some lucky SOBs who can fish for fun that often) you don’t really need to worry about either. If your boat sits a lot, you may need to be concerned about both. I’d like to see a real expert weigh in, too.

Personally I do flush mine after every trip, unless I’m going right back out in the morning. And most of the time I flush with SaltAway just as a precaution. But my boat will usually sit a while between runs, especially this time of year when I’m hunting every free chance. If they are being run daily or at least 4-5 times a week (like a guides boat) I honestly don’t see where it would do any good since the boat is spending that much time in the saltwater. I have seen SGrems equipment and he does make a living with it and his has never failed. Just my 2 cents, I’ll defer to an expert since I’m not a mechanic.
